The compact Hyundai Tuscon crossover was redesigned for the 2010 model year with a stylish exterior that still seems fresh. A 2.4-liter engine delivered lively acceleration, and the Tuscons from this period handled well, but with a somewhat stiff ride. The cabin is straightforwardly designed with easily operated controls, but cargo room is a bit tight behind the rear seats.
